“Men are always better paid than women” – Sweet Dreams star Berenice Bejo on gender inequality in cinema

22 February 2017 7:11 AM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

Every year HeyUGuys are fortunate enough to be invited to a long-weekend in Paris to interview some of the industry’s finest performers (stay tuned for our feature with Isabelle Huppert next week) – and this year we had the pleasure of meeting Berenice Bejo, in the French capital to promote her latest endeavour, Sweet Dreams.

After spending time discussing her role in the Marco Bellocchio production, and her love for Italian cinema – she then went on to discuss the role of women in the film industry, and her disdain at the financial inequality between the sexes. She also goes on to discuss her role in her husband Michel Hazanavicius’ latest, the Godard biopic Redoubtable, and just how often she and her partner help each other in their respective careers.

So what’s your relationship with Italian cinema?

I have a very strong relationship with Italian cinema, because »

French Films’ International Box Office Plunges in 2016

13 January 2017 11:40 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Box office for French film exports plunged 63% last year, compared to 2015, to €230 million ($240.4 million) off 34 million ticket sales, down 69%, as no new English-language French movie caught fire in either the U.S. or China, according to provisional 2016 figures announced by French export org UniFrance Friday.

For lack of a big new entry, “The Little Prince,” the No. 2 best theatrical performer outside France in 2015, ranked No. 1 in 2016. Underperforming in the U.S., EuropaCorp scare-fest “Shut In” was still France’s second-best performer in 2016.
